From the heart

Night has come, the secadas make their chirping that slices through the silence.

Stars and the moon, the only immediate light, the apartments near by are dark, do people live here really or is it abandoned?

Music plays on the stereo and the air conditioner hums keeping our apartment cool as an ice cube.

Only our trustworthy watch cat sits atop a crate with mysteries to be revealed.

Night has come to our humble abode here in Branson and tomorrow will bring another sunrise another day

A Cats life

Meow mew merew meeow 

these are the words my cat says, I am not sure what she means.  She sits looking at me,, sometimes she purrs and sometimes she just curls up and falls asleep.  What a life she has.

A Cats life, from the  Cat

Why don't you pay attemtion to me?

I want  food... Now!

Oh that feels good, but I still need food.  Oh okay you are off the hook.  That feels so good.

I think I will go over here and sleep for 20 hours.  Or at least until you feed me,..

A Fantastic, actually it is Incredible place to eat... In Springfield Missouri

Perhaps one of the most entertaining places that I have been to, since coming back to Missouri is America's Incredible Pizza.

America's Incredible Pizza is a theme restaurant tied to 1954 to 1959.  There are pictures from Springfield High School in they Gymnasium one of three eating areas inside the restaurant, along with the Diner and Starlite Theater where you can eat Pizza, Pasta or Tacos and watch a movie.  Such classics as "Toy Story" and "The Sound of Music" have been featured.  They run uninterrupted and repeat, so if you miss part of a favorite movie, you can see it all the way through.

Besides Pasta and Tacos, there is a wide selection of Pizza's from traditional Pepperoni to BBQ and a Greek Pizza with Feta Cheese and Spinach.

All food is cooked on site and fresh from the kitchen.  Other food fare includes Hot dogs, A Salad Bar and a Desert Bar. 

The great thing about the Desert Bar is that it features not just classics, like Ice Cream and Peach Cobbler, but Strawberry Peach Cobbler, which has to be tried, The strawberries are just tart enough to cut the sweetness of the Peach.  It is amazing and Bread Pudding, something I had never tried and fell in love with.
Strawberry Peach Cobbler.  Yummy in the tummy
Bread Pudding, something I fell in love with,
Prices are very reasonable and you can even have birthday celebrations at America's Incredible Pizza.

One last feature that I have waited to share, is A game room, that is to die for.  Again there is a great variety of games, everything from Skeet Ball to bumper cars, to video games like Jurasic Park.  You can take a chance with the claw and see if you can win a Minion.  

Overall America's Incredible Pizza, lives up to its' name.  It is incredible and a fun place for the whole family or just couples, looking for great food a movie and games all under one roof.

America's Incredible Pizza is located at 2522 South Campbell Avenue located in Springfield Missouri.
For information or details on specials or arranging an Incredible birthday party you can call 417-890-1408.

GIBBS! What have they done to thee?

Just recently, I watched the final 2 episodes of NCIS for this season.  Now at first the next to last episode did not seem so off, until I began to think about it. and how it was handled.  

The Lost Boys, the next to last episode had a major mistake in the dramatic storyline, in that Gibbs went onto the bus and remained there after the passengers had been successfully evacuated.  Now yes Gibbs would do all he could to talk the young man out of killing himself, but when it became apparent that the young man was going to kill himself, Gibbs needed to get to safety, also he was hardly injured or so it seemed because he was back in action immediately, no rest or recovery.

Neverland, the final episode of the season Gibbs might as well not have been in the story, because for all intensive purposes he was not.

Mark Harmon walked through this episiode with hardly a single line of dialogue, his reactions were plastic.

Every major scene in the spisode Mimi Rogers,CIA officerJoanna Teague was the lead character, she had all the significant dialogue and left Mark Harmon just standing there looking like a frustrated character.

Gibbs had nothing to say or do until near the very end of the episode where he was again confronted by a teenage twerrorist and put in harms way.

The other major problem I had with Mimi Rogers character, for a woman whose son had just died, she was static.  There were no emotions, she was aloof and unemotional, even when looking at her son in Duckys' lab.

Granted she was a high ranking CIA official, but in all honesty, she had just lost her son, besides anger at wanting revenge, there were no other emotions expressed.  She might as well have been a Vulcan.

Also one of the worst scenes involved Abby Schuto.

Abby has always been calm, and in control, she has let her emotions fly when need be, but she has never pulled back and been a shrinking violet.  I a key scene with Gibbs and her in her lab, she sounded like a scared little girl and held a stuffed giraffe as if she were five years old.

I can not remember the last time I have watched an episode of NCIS and been so disappointed by the episode.  This is two this season that seem to be poorly executed.  Maybe, this is a sign that Season 13 should be the last season of the series.  Maybe it is time to walk away before the episodes get worse than this and make fans feel totally alienated.

What were your thoughts?

THE DARK WORLD OF BLAKES' 7 and how it coming to be today.

Back in 1978 a television series premiered in England, the series was a dark and brooding series with a group of criminals and a man falsely accused of pedophilia as the heroes, who fought against a tyrannical government that used drugs and technology to imprison their population.

The Series was called BLAKES 7 and it ran for four years.

In the series people were constantly under observation, they were fed false broadcasts of events of fake messages from family members long since killed, they had no civil rights and the police were every where and could arrest you and detain you without any warrant or cause.

Also in the second season there were two shocking episodes that ring truer moreso now than back then.

The first was an episode titled SHADOW.  This episode dealt with a drug that was very addictive and was able to get past earth security and into the population.  At the end it was discovered that the government on earth controlled the drug and its dispersal.

Wouldn't it be surprising if this explains why the cartels can infiltrate our nation and sell their drugs with only limited interdiction by our law enforcement.

The one that really struck a nerve though was WEAPON.  The FEDERATION, The earth government had developed a weapon that on one setting it marks a person so they can be tracked and located, the second setting can kill them.

Just recently a new piece of technology was released by accident to the news services.  The device can spray a fine mist on a person that allows them to be located and tracked without them knowing.

Sounds like Blake technology.  

Other aspects of Blakes' world that have crept into our daily life.

No matter where you go, you are under observation.  Security cameras on busses, in banks, stores restaurants schools.  Cameras mounted at stop lights that photograph you if you break the law or record vehicles as they travel through certain areas of a city.  

People conditioned to this monitoring by television shows like Big Brother and to a lesser degree Survivor.

Profiling of people who are of certain ethnic or racial lines. 

People being content to not be involved as long as they have their laptops and cell phones.

Slowly we are moving more and more into the world of 1984 of Blakes 7 a world of darkness and no freedom.

We can stop this, we have the ability to do so.  But it means becoming involved and taking stands and not allowing more and more invasions in our lives to protect us from it.  What ever it is.

Act for freedom or sit by and be passive and be a prisoner of the government.  It is up to you.
